Knill plays down Blackpool link

Published Add your comment

Bury boss Alan Knill has dismissed speculation linking him with the vacant manager`s position at Blackpool.

The Seasiders are on the lookout for a new boss after caretaker manager Tony Parkes quit Bloomfield Road on Tuesday morning.

Knill told the club`s official website: "All this about Blackpool is just speculation, obviously it`s flattering but at the moment it`s just speculation. It shows just what we have achieved that if there is interest, it`s coming from a club two divisions higher."

He added: "It`s good but at the moment it`s just speculation and until I hear otherwise I`m getting on with what I`m doing, and that`s meeting new players."

Parkes and Steve Thompson had been in charge together following Simon Grayson`s departure to Leeds just before Christmas last year, helping the Lancashire outfit avoid relegation from the Championship.
